I didn't get it - until I scrolled down to where I could see the neat spacer. You gotta' admit he did a good job with the shaping.

I tiled a bathroom wall once and I ran out of 6" bull nose tile on a half wall above a decked tub. I only needed 3 more tiles and couldn't find them anywhere. I tried grinding an edge on some field tile but I just couldn't get it right. I made the tiles out of wood (clear maple), routed the edge and got a paint match from SWP. That was a dozen years ago and I'm the only one (until now) that knows they are there.

But the painter ruined the job with the caulk or was that the carpenter.

We don't caulk. Painters claim they make us look good, and is true most of the time. Not on this one.

Nah, the painter just hasn't had time to prime it and match the paint to the commode

Yeah, Brant, with "v" cuts every 2", I guess. I say scrape the caulk, put in wood filler and stain it like the floor. Don't know why they caulked it. No water down there.

Looks ADA compliant.... Hmmm.

But do you see the plumbers skill of the "rear flush fit, high velocity acme turbulator PVC fitting"!!!!! I mean that's skill.

Must be some shoe makers in his family for sure....
